Choosing the right type of flooring for your conservatory is just as important as the overall build and design of the structure itself.
As you can imagine, there are a variety of considerations to take into account when planning for a conservatory, including what room it will be adjoined to, and what you are going to use it for.
With that in mind, let’s discuss what types of flooring you should consider for your conservatory:
Say yes to laminate flooring
When it comes to laminate flooring, it’s probably worth considering a waterproof type of laminate flooring, such as Aqua-Step Waterproof Flooring.
This means that the floor will be able to respond to changes in both heat and moisture, while also being impact-resistant.
As we all know, conservatories are subject to incredible changes in heat, so it’s important the floor is able to respond to dramatic changes in its environment.
Say yes to luxury vinyl flooring
We have a huge range of luxury vinyl flooring options, including both stone and wood effects, so that you can choose a floor that perfectly matches the design and décor elements of your conservatory.
Like laminate flooring, luxury vinyl flooring is greatly resistant to temperature change, moisture, and daily wear and tear.
What’s more, all our luxury vinyl flooring options (much like our laminate flooring options), are UV resistant, making them perfect for conservatories.
Say yes to engineered flooring
For those that want a natural look for their conservatory, the good news is that they can still enjoy an authentic wood feel, although it must be in the form of engineered flooring.
This is because the floor must be able to withstand changes in temperature and moisture, and engineered flooring is far more capable of doing this than solid wood flooring, which is not suitable for conservatories.
Avoid solid wood flooring in conservatories
As already discussed, solid wood flooring should not be installed in a conservatory, even if you are able to adequately control the temperature.
Although many people worry about the colour fading within a floor (which can be protected by a UV lacquer anyway), the real concern should fall around the expansion, shrinking, and warping of the floor, which will occur during regular temperature changes.
